The After. 
2022


The New Normal. It's all a blur for me, these years home, the isolation. 


But my painting is dramatically different.  These new paintings glow.


As an abstract painter, I generally have no idea how the final painting will look - my process relies on the nature of my movement. 


I have a strong interest in organic forms and gravity, these are my most powerful tools. I slowly build layers, controlling what I can, but also seeing how my marks are influenced by water, gravity, my movements. I actively observe change, I respond in the moment. My action helps create the composition, but the final painting is a result of my interaction with my work, not my control of it. 


There is always a moment when I look and say, oh no, did I just muck it up? Is it ruined? And then I change course, improvise, find a path forward. I see my work as a metaphor for our lives, our place on the Earth. We cannot control everything in our environments - but we do have the power to affect positive change. We can change course, be a force for good, for strength and beauty. We can seek to control what we can, and limit our harm. We can find a path forward.
